Join us next Monday, June 1st @ 11:30 am - 1:30pm to Rally Against the Oregon Monsanto Protection Acts HB 3212 and HB2509 at the Capitol building in Salem! Confirmed speakers are: Dr. Ray Seidler, Mary Middleton, and Rep. Peter Buckley We need your help stopping 2 bills that the Oregon Senate is now considering. We've outlined several actions you can take to derail these protections for Monsanto and the agribusiness interests behind GMOs. The bills are HB 3212 and HB 2509. See talking points below. 1) If you haven't already, please contact legislators on the Senate committees that are considering these bills. Include the Bill # in your subject line, and be sure to include your name. 2) Forward this Action Alert to friends who live in these Senators' districts and encourage them to contact their Senator and voice their opposition to these bills. Comments from legislators' constituents carry a lot of weight. 3) Come to Salem on Monday, June 1st. 11:30-12:30 Rally against the Oregon Monsanto Protection Acts HB 3212 and HB2509 at the Capitol building 1:00 in HR B - Testify at the Public Hearing for HB 3212 3:00 in HR C - Attend a possible work session for HB 2509 HB 3212 Call and email: Sen.LeeBeyer@state.or.us (503-986-1706) District 6 - Springfield Sen.RodMonroe@state.or.us (503-986-1724) District 24 - Portland Sen.ChuckRiley@state.or.us ( 503-986-1715) District 15 - Hillsboro Sen.ChuckThomsen@state.or.us (503-986-1726) District 26 - Hood River Sen.FredGirod@state.or.us (503-986-1709) District 9 - Stayton or copy/paste these email addresses, including the Committee Administrator, James LaBar: james.labar@state.or.us, Sen.LeeBeyer@state.or.us, Sen.RodMonroe@state.or.us, Sen.ChuckRiley@state.or.us,Sen.ChuckThomsen@state.or.us, Sen.FredGirod@state.or.us HB 3212 was proposed by Rep. Brian Clem, and is not only targetted at GMOs, but undermines the ability of every county and city to adopt any law, like Jackson County’s ban on GMOs, that protects family farmers from damaging agricultural practices. HB 3212 would define any county, city or state law addressing farming practices as a “land use regulation” and would require local governments to either pay “compensation” for a landowner's claimed reduction in their property value OR waive the law entirely. That’s right - under HB 3212 Jackson County could be allowed to waive the GMO ban if individual GMO growers claimed the ban had reduced the value of their property or face potentially millions of dollars in compensation claims. HB 3212 is a major expansion of Measure 49’s “compensation” rules proposed by Rep. Brian Clem and goes way beyond what Oregonians ever intended. The proposed law would undermine the ability of counties like ours to adopt laws that protect family farmers growing traditional or organic crops from the impacts of industrial agricultural practices, such as GMOs. With the recent development and approval of GMO crops designed for heavy spraying with 2,4-D (the major ingredient in Agent Orange), it is more important than ever that local communities preserve our ability to protect family farmers from practices that put family farmers at risk. But HB 3212 requires county taxpayers to pay “compensation” to any farm landowner that says a local or state law has decreased their property values OR waive the law. This of course is the real goal behind HB 3212. What types of laws could be affected? • Potential limits on pesticide drift from aerial spraying of toxic chemicals to protect sensitive agricultural crops, such as vineyards or organically grown crops, as well as water supplies, schools or neighborhoods • Local laws protecting family farmers from contamination by genetically engineered crops, such as Jackson County’s citizen supported 2014 GMO-ban • Animal welfare laws, such as Oregon’s new rules setting minimum space requirements for chickens • Laws protecting water quality and salmon, such as minimal riparian setbacks • Water conservation restrictions targeting wasteful water practices that leave other farmers without adequate water supplies HB 2509 Call and email: Sen.ChrisEdwards@state.or.us (503-986-1707) District 7 - North Eugene, West Eugene, Santa Clara, and Junction City Sen.AlanOlsen@state.or.us (503-986-1720) District 20 - Canby Sen.MichaelDembrow@state.or.us (503-986-1723) District 23 - Portland Sen.FloydProzanski@state.or.us (503-986-1704) District 4 - South Lane and North Douglas Counties Sen.ChuckThomsen@state.or.us (503-986-1726) District 26 - Hood River or copy/paste these email addresses, including Committee Administrator, Beth Reiley: Beth.Reiley@state.or.us, Sen.MichaelDembrow@state.or.us;Sen.ChrisEdwards@state.or.us; Sen.FloydProzanski@state.or.us;Sen.AlanOlsen@state.or.us; Sen.ChuckThomsen@state.or.us HB 2509 is being openly backed by Monsanto’s main front group, Oregonians for Food and Shelter. What would HB 2509 do? The bill would put Monsanto’s mantra that GMO growers and farmers raising traditional and organic crops can “co-exist” into state law while ignoring the billions in economic damage that GMOs have already caused to other non-GMO farmers, but that’s not the worst of it. There are at least 4 big problems with HB 2509: 1. Forced mediation. HB 2509 would effectively force farmers whose crops were contaminated by GMOs into a vague “mediation process” orchestrated by the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture (ODA) before a farmer could go to court to sue to try to stop GMO contamination. Farmers can already use mediation if it make sense, but they should not be forced into a biased “mediation” process controlled by staunch GMO supporters at the ODA. 2. Liability for farmers contaminated by GMOs. If a farmer refused to mediate, HB 2509 says they could be liable for hundreds of thousands of dollars in a GMO-grower’s attorney's fees in a related court case. AND if Monsanto or their ilk joined the case, the farmer could even be liable for their attorney fees. 3. Pro-GMO mediators. HB 2509’s mediation process would be orchestrated by the State agency that has done more to defend GMOs than any other: the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture (ODA). ODA could then create a costly and time consuming mediation process that would make it harder for farmers to protect themselves against GMO contamination. 4. Funding for OSU propaganda. The bill would also direct propaganda funding to OSU for “educational materials and information regarding the coexistent use of agricultural lands.” The bill would put OSU, which has a long history of promoting GMOs, in the position of using Monsanto’s talking points that GMOs can “co-exist” with organic and other non-GMO crops despite the dramatic contamination events and billions in damage that GMOs continue to cause to non-GMO crops. http://www.facebook.com/events/431073007073321/

Time As Money: A Documentary Film About Time Banking will be screening at this year's The Village Building Convergence 2015 (VBC), 15th Anniversary City Wide Celebration! Theme: Thrive It Up! Time As Money is a documentary exploring time banking, a service exchange program that uses time as the currency. Time banking began in the 1980s while civil rights lawyer and former speechwriter for Robert Kennedy, Edgar Cahn, was lying in a hospital bed after a heart attack. This experience of feeling helpless, similar to the disenfranchised and unemployed, gave him the idea to create a new system of money as a tool to connect people and neighbors called time dollars. Time bankers find that not only does this complementary currency bring improvement to their lives, but it empowers them to create larger-scaled time bank projects, giving everyone involved ownership in the community. Time As Money was funded by time dollars. $0 federal dollars were needed in the making of this film. Director, Lenore Eklund, will open up a discussion after the film about time banking and about the PDX Time Bank.

Please come ready for a BIKE RIDE. We will do a 5 mile ride to Base Camp (930 SE Oak St), families and folks who are tired of riding can stop there, everyone else, we're going to keep riding until it's time to stop and PARTAY! Another 8 miles of riding before we end up on the waterfront. Yes, you heard it right, WE ARE OUT TO RIDE The first part of the ride is 5.5 miles and is VERY flat aside from one hill near the start to get over Burnside Bridge and slowly up to 12th and Irving. Great for families, kids, heavy bikes with trailers, etc... The second portion of the ride will be only mildly hillier, if you are tired from the first, then maybe don't consider the second. Grab a beer and food at Base Camp and food carts and then come down to the waterfront for the after party. If you are not tired, THEN RIDE!!! Come dressed up to, not the 9's, not even the 10's, PEOPLE WE ARE DRESSING TO THE 11'S. That means, bring the most of your personal flavor whether that be the most outrageous fantastic thing you own or just your normal awesome rad everyday self, either way, you will look slick, WE WILL LOOK SLICK and we will be out to show PDX how it is done! Caveat: kiddos have to be out of Base Camp at 10PM, but if your kids are up that late then come down to the waterfront. Restrooms: There are restrooms on the waterfront under the Hawthorne Bridge and a Portland Loo is just one block north of the Salmon Springs Fountain. And of course at base camp. Safety: We are all out to have a fantastic time and celebrate the amazing beginning of Portland's most beloved cycling festival. Let's ride with caution, passion, and a huge pile of mutual respect for each other. Let's make sure everyone ends their night home safely and that we start this Pedalpalooza IN STYLE! http://www.facebook.com/events/1456240708001933/

There are a number of upcoming opportunities to raise our voices opposing oil and coal proposals and in favor of a clean energy future. If we can speak truth to power at the upcoming public hearings, we can beat destructive fossil fuel projects back. Our united people powered voice has led to recent victories in the Pacific Northwest -- stopping two propane proposals on the Columbia River and four coal export projects throughout the region. But we can’t do this without you! Attend a public forum to learn how to stop Big Oil and Dirty Coal companies from turning our region into a fossil fuel hub. At the forum, panelists will provide details about what’s at stake, how to protect our region from fossil fuel threats, and how you can take action at public hearings to stop these toxic proposals. WHAT: Portland Fossil Fuel Projects Forum WHEN: Thursday, June 4, 2015 at 7:00 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM for refreshments) WHERE: Central Lutheran Church 1820 NE 21st Ave, Portland, OR 97212 RSVP today to join local community leaders for an open dialogue about coal and oil projects in the Pacific Northwest. It’s up to us make sure that Washington’s Governor Inslee and decision-makers do all they can to prevent a massive increase in fossil fuel development and transportation across our region. The event is free and open to the public, but please arrive early for refreshments, seating, and to visit partnering organizations. As always, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions!

The locally produced, award winning documentary Arresting Power- Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon will screen at the Clinton Street Theater on Friday, June 5 at 7:00pm, and Saturday, June 6 at 7:00pm Tickets are $5-10 sliding scale. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. Since its release in January 2015, the film has screened at dozens of theaters, community spaces, churches, film festivals, universities and other venues in the Pacific Northwest and nationally. Reviewers have called the film “an acute and compassionate look at the realities of police brutality in Portland, Oregon” and that it communicates its timely message with “artful clarity.” Arresting Power won second place for the John Michaels Award for Social Justice Films at the Big Muddy Film Festival in Carbondale, Illinois and the Alliance for Community Media Best of the Northwest Award for Best Documentary. Arresting Power provides a historical and political analysis of the role of the police in contemporary society and the history of policing in the United States. It provides a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland with its history of exclusion laws, racial profiling, gentrification practices and policing along lines of race and class. It serves to uncover Portland’s unique history of police relations and community response. Arresting Power features interviews with the families of people who were killed by Portland police, victims of police misconduct, local historians and community organizers. Utilizing archival newsreel from the Oregon Historical Society’s moving image archive, the film explores the history of police reform and abolition movements that have been active throughout the past 50 years, and introduces viewers to community leaders and organizations including Walidah Imarisha, author of the Oregon Black History Timeline, JoAnn Hardesty and Rev. Dr. LeRoy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice & Police Reform, and Kent Ford of the Portland Chapter of the Black Panther Party. 0 sliding scale.

The locally produced, award winning documentary Arresting Power- Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon will screen at the Clinton Street Theater Sunday, June 7 at 3:00pm. Tickets are $5-10 sliding scale. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. On Sunday, June 7, at 4:30pm, after the final screening, there will be a panel discussion entitled Building Resistance, which will include members of the Portland chapter of the All African People’s Revolutionary Party, the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice and Police Reform and the African Hip Hop Caravan. The discussion will explore the diversity of tactics, ideologies and the tension between revolution and reform in the historic fight for autonomy and community control. The panel is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. Since its release in January 2015, the film has screened at dozens of theaters, community spaces, churches, film festivals, universities and other venues in the Pacific Northwest and nationally. Reviewers have called the film “an acute and compassionate look at the realities of police brutality in Portland, Oregon” and that it communicates its timely message with “artful clarity.” Arresting Power won second place for the John Michaels Award for Social Justice Films at the Big Muddy Film Festival in Carbondale, Illinois and the Alliance for Community Media Best of the Northwest Award for Best Documentary. Arresting Power provides a historical and political analysis of the role of the police in contemporary society and the history of policing in the United States. It provides a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland with its history of exclusion laws, racial profiling, gentrification practices and policing along lines of race and class. It serves to uncover Portland’s unique history of police relations and community response. Arresting Power features interviews with the families of people who were killed by Portland police, victims of police misconduct, local historians and community organizers. Utilizing archival newsreel from the Oregon Historical Society’s moving image archive, the film explores the history of police reform and abolition movements that have been active throughout the past 50 years, and introduces viewers to community leaders and organizations including Walidah Imarisha, author of the Oregon Black History Timeline, JoAnn Hardesty and Rev. Dr. LeRoy Haynes of the Albina Ministerial Alliance Coalition for Justice & Police Reform, and Kent Ford of the Portland Chapter of the Black Panther Party.

Taught by John Doyle M.A., Art History, Tufts University. Former Education Department lecturer, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND. The course sold out in May. BUY YOUR TICKET ON EVENTBRITE now. From its tenuous and humble beginnings as a frontier outpost on the western fringe of the continent to its current status as media darling and the most popular city in America to relocate to Portland has had a colorful, varied and often tumultuous history. This course will examine various aspects of that rich history. Week 1 (June 8th): Founders, Fortunes and Sometimes Fraud. Learn about the men and women who carved this city out of a heavily wooded flood plain on the banks of the Willamette. What were their goals and aspirations and how did they go about securing the material wealth that turned their early vision into a successful and thriving city? Week 2 (June 15): Field trip! Wood, Cast Iron, Stone and Steel. Portland possesses a rich architectural heritage. This class will examine its development from the first generation of wood structures along Front St., through the cast iron building boom of the 1860s and 70s, to the massive stone and brick structures of the Richardsonian Romanesque and beyond. A variety of 19th century revival styles and Portland's cutting edge leadership in 20th century Modernism will be thoroughly examined as well. Week 3 (June 22): The Other Portlanders. This session will focus on the often underreported contributions of Portland communities outside the demographic majority. Women, African, Asian, and Native Americans, immigrants from Ireland, Italy, Germany, Scandinavia et al, Queers, genderbenders and counter culture freaks will all be on the table, and we can't leave out our rich Jewish and Muslim American heritage either. Week 4 (June 29): How Many Urban Planners Does It Take To Build A City: Why does Portland look the way it does? What is up with the bend of the streets north of Burnside, our tiny square blocks, narrow downtown streets and Ladds Addition? Street Cars, Bridges, Railroads, Freeways, Bike Lanes and Aerial Trams will all be in play for our last class in the series. http://www.facebook.com/events/1106066829408616/

We love local bike shops. They tune up our bikes after long, wet winters. Their staff ride on the same bike routes and trails that we do. They don’t mind if we try on every helmet in the store before making a decision and, for BTA members, they’ll usually knock 10% off the price. The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has teamed up with Base Camp Brewing Company and The Portland Mercury to pay tribute to these local hubs of bike community. Every month, we will have “BTA Shop Beers” at a different local bike shop. Find out what’s new in your community, learn about the BTA, and have a beer with friends old and new. June’s BTA Shop Beers will be at Gladys Bikes in Northeast Portland. Fun facts about Gladys Bikes: - They have the only "saddle library" in the country (as far as they know). - They moved their shop to its current location on Alberta Street BY BIKE! - Gladys is also the home of custom bicycle builder Sweetpea Bicycles. https://www.facebook.com/events/446476305515705/

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

Resistance Ecology is back for the third year in a row! SPEAKERS AND MORE ANNOUNCED! (please see below for details) We are excited to invite you to the 3rd Annual Resistance Ecology Conference. The conference will be held once again at Portland State University in Portland, OR (on the occupied territories of the Multnomah Chinook), the weekend of June 12-14, 2015. For two years, the Resistance Ecology Conference has served as a beacon on the path to grassroots animal liberation. We aspire to create a forum to unite animal liberationists, land defenders, and organizers to share skill sets and resources, to report and recruit, to coordinate campaigns, and to promote solidarity, coalition organizing and mass movement building against the structures that underpin animal use and ecological destruction on the continent— Euro-settler colonialism, white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, neoliberalism, and border imperialism. We challenge the professionalization, corporate assimilation, consumer-orientation, and one-dimensional analysis of the so-called animal “rights” movement in the west that is founded in positions of social power and is made possible through colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy. The goal of the conference is to identify these analytical and structural barriers within the animal liberation movement as barriers that prevent us from creating the radical analysis, solidarity, and mass movement necessary to affect meaningful change for animals. If you are interested in presenting or tabling, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH SOONER RATHER THAN LATER so we can make arrangements. If you are interested in volunteering, get in touch! We can plug you in!

Resistance Ecology is back for the third year in a row! SPEAKERS AND MORE ANNOUNCED! (please see below for details) We are excited to invite you to the 3rd Annual Resistance Ecology Conference. The conference will be held once again at Portland State University in Portland, OR (on the occupied territories of the Multnomah Chinook), the weekend of June 12-14, 2015. For two years, the Resistance Ecology Conference has served as a beacon on the path to grassroots animal liberation. We aspire to create a forum to unite animal liberationists, land defenders, and organizers to share skill sets and resources, to report and recruit, to coordinate campaigns, and to promote solidarity, coalition organizing and mass movement building against the structures that underpin animal use and ecological destruction on the continent— Euro-settler colonialism, white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, neoliberalism, and border imperialism. We challenge the professionalization, corporate assimilation, consumer-orientation, and one-dimensional analysis of the so-called animal “rights” movement in the west that is founded in positions of social power and is made possible through colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy. The goal of the conference is to identify these analytical and structural barriers within the animal liberation movement as barriers that prevent us from creating the radical analysis, solidarity, and mass movement necessary to affect meaningful change for animals. If you are interested in presenting or tabling, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH SOONER RATHER THAN LATER so we can make arrangements. If you are interested in volunteering, get in touch! We can plug you in!

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

ALEC, the American Legislative Exchange Council, is a corporate directed organization which facilitates conversations between legislators and the representatives of large, usually multi-national corporations, in order to advance the needs of those corporations. They do so by writing model legislation which then is introduced, either as exactly written by the corporations, or with slight modifications, into state legislatures around the nation and now even into county and city governments. ALEC has worked under the radar of media to promote laws beneficial to multi-national corporations. Funding of ALEC is via corporate membership fees of thousands of dollars. Such corporations as Koch Industries, Exxon Mobil, Peabody Energy, Walmart, UPS, BNSF, are members. Secretive corporate directed and funded organizations like ALEC undermine the principle of citizen participation in democratic processes. When organizations like ALEC work in secret to promote legislation without exposing the source of such legislation, the people's ability to legislate in their own interest is undermined and democracy is hurt. The people's ability to influence public policy is threatened by such secretive corporate drive organizations. ALEC Exposed explains how ALEC functions, who is involved, and how we fight back to promote democratic, non-corporate values. A screening will be followed by a panel discussion of the issues. $5 - 20 donation requested, no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Make Music Day PDX is an event for people who love music and the joyous sense of community that music can foster. It will be held at numerous locations in Portland. Make Music Day PDX is a celebration of music of all genres played by and enjoyed by people of all stripes. We plan to have music from Alternative to Bluegrass to Classical to Zydeco. And we hope to have a large turnout from the whole community, celebrating together our shared love of live music. We will be joining over 725 cities around the world to celebrate Make Music Day – so help us make this day unforgettable as we kick off summer with music for all to enjoy! Make Music Day PDX is an outgrowth of the Fete de la Musique, which originated in France in 1982. The event began as a call to musicians in Paris to get out in the streets on June 21 and play their music. It has since spread and has a large footprint, particularly in Europe and parts of Africa, but also in a handful of cities getting started in the U.S. http://makemusicdaypdx.org/ For detailed description on schedules and venues

Portland's Urban Native Americans: What You Need to Know to Be An Ally Taught by Christine Dupres (Cowlitz/Cree tribe), Ph.D. Wednesdays 7-8:30 at SE Uplift, 3534 SE Main St, four weeks $60 (Space limited to 15) Native Americans face tricky sociopolitical and structural inequities in today's Portland. What does it mean to be an ally? Explore the issues impacting Native Americans, the history behind them, and gain a language for supporting the lives and culture of Native people. This experimental, silly, and interactive class will crush stereotypes and raise hell. In a fun way. Class 1 (June 10): The Context for Urban Natives of Portland: who we are, where we were, what we're doing now. Current studies estimate at least 60% of Native people live off reservation. Historically, this is no accident. Discover why it's important to understand the unique characteristics of Urban Indians compared to other non­white urban populations, and to their reservation counterparts. Learn about federal policy toward Native peoples like the Doctrine of Discovery and its role in US expansion. We'll look at Portland's Native Indians as a case study and consider the contemporary impact of policies upon Native people.

Dirty Queer is an X rated open mic: a place to celebrate sexuality and strut your creative stuff! Hosted by renegade writer and poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer has proven itself to be a thought provoking evening of excitement, passion, laughter and full body shivers. We're looking for queer erotic entertainers of all sorts: dancers, jugglers, singers, musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, magicians, gender performers ... if you can do it in 5 minutes or less (w/ minimal props/equip), this open mic's for you! We average over 120 people a month, so come early if you want a seat. Everyone who attends has a chance to win door prizes from local businesses, as well as a percentage off items at our very own feminist bookstore and host, IOW! Your donation of $1-$5/person for this event goes directly to supporting IOW, and more donations are always welcome. Caveats: 18+, consent is key, no hate speech, sign up is first come, first serve. Need a dose of Dirty Queer sooner than that? Come check out our photos, samples, bios, videos, and podcast on our website: www.dirtyqueer.com. Contact: info@dirtyqueer.com

We meet at In Other Words on the third Thursday of each month to discuss young adult novels through a feminist/queer lens. How do our reactions to YA literature change as we age? What messages do authors send to young people? Do the stories line up with our memories of being teenagers? We read contemporary work and also revisit classic authors like Judy Blume and SE Hinton. Sound interesting? Join our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/142378029143391/) to see what we've read so far, and to stay updated on what we're reading next!

Many have gone on to start school clubs, plan fundraisers for nonprofits, organize community clean-ups, give testimony at public hearings, and more. Best of all, campers will form amazing bonds, do things they never thought possible, and have the time of their lives!

Kundalini yoga uses postures, chanting and meditation to help us connect to the divine teacher within. This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins. Kundalini yoga can help to clear subconscious conditioning that no longer serves us. It can be helpful for those living with mental illness and addiction. It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10. Nobody turned away for lack of funds. For more info about Kundalini yoga or this class, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/chariotoftheheartyoga

FREE Event! Welcome to a new local gaming event organized and run BY women! If you identify as female, genderqueer, gender fluid, or as a gender minority, you are welcome to join our inclusive story-gaming community for Femme Game Night events! All experience levels are more than welcome, from first-time gamers to seasoned storytellers and roleplayers. If you are intrigued by RPGs and/or story games, but have had your doubts about jumping into an established group or felt uncomfortable going to another organized gaming event, you are SUPER DUPER EXTRA welcome.Story games are a little bit like board games, and a lot like grown-up versions of the “let’s pretend” games you probably played as a child. Above all, they are about TELLING A STORY TOGETHER. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s not about making the best character or mastering the rules, it’s about CREATING something together and HAVING FUN. These games take no more than a few minutes to learn, play within a couple of hours, and focus on story rather than rules. Come check it out! We're always looking for more folks to help facilitate, so shoot me a message or post below if you have a game you'd like to share!Let's enjoy each others' company and play quick, easy-to-learn, story-based role playing games in a welcoming female-centered environment. The games don't usually begin until 6:30 but feel free to join us for witty banter before hand.
